it doesn't even make sense to waste time thinking about it. What the heck - from his bio, I read
"...and help the Center for Internet Security create security benchmarks for key technologies"
Wow - he seems to be a security professional, well? Okay - I'm too. And as professional, manufacturer-independant consultant (and certified "IT security coordinator") it simply makes me drop off my chair laughing when this "security professional" really dares to write...:
"Many of my presentations discuss home security, where XP and Windows 2000 are the predominant "kings of the hill."
Wuhaha! Yeah. That's what the ranking for security issues tells us - great joke, man, great joke!
And to be honest - yawn - virtualization technology from Microsoft... hmm? Fine. Let's talk about the fact that Virtual PC was not "invented" by Microsoft. It was simply bought from Connectix, because at Redmond they knew they would never be able to cope with the existing competitors.
And what about
"After this one change, installation was much, much snappier and only got better once the Additions for Windows, DOS, and OS/2 were installed."
I think I know what he *wanted* to say, but - harhar - instead this simply reads like:
"OS/2 is shit but if you install the additions for it, the Virtual stuff gets snappier".
That'll leave some newbies puzzled. Well, John, thanks for making clear that OS/2 will increase performance! )
Nah, come on. For the sake of mankind, let's close this thread.
